Q & Q with.... Erzabet Bishop!!!!

1. Tell us about your newest release.
 
My newest release is Holidays in Hell and is about an incubus named Jonas. He has one more soul to claim and his contract will be fulfilled. It just so happens that things aren't going to go exactly to plan.


BUY LINK

2. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your story?


How to write for hours without caffeine or sleep. When I get on a roll, the story just goes…


3. Do you have any interesting or quirks or rituals?


Yes. I suppose you could call them that. I have to have bottled water, chocolate and a stack of sticky notes nearby. My foam board is ready and I use it to generally plot what I'm going to do with the story.


4. What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?
 

I think reading a lot when I was younger greatly influenced me. Anne Rice, a horror anthology my sister gave me when I was young and finally Ray Bradbury. He had some wonderful advice for new authors that has helped me greatly. He said to write a short story every week and sooner or later you won't be terrible.

5. What does your family think about your career as a published author?


They are very supportive. My husband helps with dinner and is very patient with my wacky schedule. I write around my full time job so time can be precious indeed.


6. Besides writing, what other interests do you have?


I love to crochet, bake, read, play with my dogs, do needlework, watch monster movies and blog about books and music.


7. Can you tell us what is coming up next for you?


I'm working on finishing up Charity Benshaw's Enchanted Paddle Emporium and I have a few other stories up my sleeve for the coming year.

Blurb:
Deck the halls with all things kinky. Jonas is an incubus with an incurable lust for gingerbread and holiday lights. When he finds himself falling for Holly Pendleton, the woman he has marked as the final soul to end his contract, he faces a heart wrenching decision: take what he needs to feed his hunger or sacrifice himself for the woman who has lit his own demonic soul on fire. Tied up with red ribbons, Holly just might be Jonas's deepest Christmas wish and the one woman who could set him free.
Excerpt:
"It's twisted." Mallory sniped, her tone coolly disapproving. Grabbing Jonas by the arm, they trudged down the main street of the Old Towne shopping district, dodging tourists and rabid consumers on a mission.
"What?"
"You’ve lost your mind completely. Here? At a shopping mall? Seriously?"
"Why not? It's not like they'll even notice." Jonas glanced in Mallory's direction and stared after the white coat of a woman he'd just seen in the crowd. It was strange, but it almost seemed like she was following them. Jonas didn't care. He stuffed the panic down and resumed his vigil. Somewhere out there was his last conquest. He just had to find her.
Holiday music piped through the air and the smell of chestnuts roasting wafted toward the crowd. The Carver Hills Old Towne Winter Carnival was in full force and it warmed Jonas’s soul to see it. Throwing caution to the wind, he let out another burst of energy and sent it spiraling into the crowd. What could it hurt? He was here on a shopping expedition of his own, and it wasn’t for the latest transforming doll or gadget. Nope. Lust was his mission. He was hungry.
"Because..." Mallory's voice trailed off as she patted the squirming dog in her purse. Terrance yipped and gave an indignant growl. Stuffed into a red sweater, the little black Chihuahua looked absolutely miserable.
 "Oh my God, Jonas. Why do you have to always pick the toughest crowd? It's a needle in a haystack."
“You’re entitled to your opinion. I, for one, am going to check things out and find something, or someone, to eat." Jonas's lips curved up in a smile at Mallory's irritated and completely unladylike snort.
"Mallory, if I want a cheeseburger I'll go to a drive-through. I want something a little more substantial. And that means I'm going to have to work for it, okay?"
She stared at him, a mutinous look on her face. Terrance yipped and she reached down absently to pet him. He shook, trying to curl himself into a ball inside Mallory's large gold purse but having a hard time.
"You'd better get him in out of the cold. The little guy's shaking like a leaf."
"He's fine," she snapped.
"Okay. Don't say I didn't warn you when his little bladder decides it's time to void all over your cell."
"Ugh! Jonas. That's disgusting. Terrence wouldn't do that, would you, honey?" Mallory reached down and gave the dog a kiss on the top of his smooth black head.
The dog whined and shook.
"Go on, Mal. I'll be fine." Please. So I can get down to business.
 He knew what he wanted. Lust was, after all, his personal vice of the seven deadlies. It really didn't matter the form. It was usually sex that got people into trouble, but any old lust would do. And right now, he wanted to indulge in a little proclivity of his own. If Mallory would leave him the hell alone, that is. The need was there and it was clawing at his gut relentlessly. But so was the desire to revel in the holidays. If things went badly, it would be his last ride on the bus, so to speak. He didn’t want to miss a thing.
 This was his most favorite time of year. Christmas. Twinkling lights. Tacky reindeer yard ornaments. Tinsel. Garlands. Ah, the things you could do with a garland. A little tricky rope work and a willing partner and you had yourself your own little bondage Christmas carol. A happy smile tilted up the corner of his mouth. It was funny as Hell, really. A lust demon with a fetish for Christmas ornaments.

Q&A with Mia Epsilon!!!





1.  Tell us about your newest release.
When You Believe is the story of two people not falling in love so much as staying in love and growing in the process. Of course, all around them odd and weird things keep happening, all somehow tied to the new man in town no one seems to know anything about.


2.  What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your story?
There is a scene in When You believe based on a true story which happened in a small town in the deep south. While researching this story, I discovered there are always 'coincidences' around us we take for granted but which could change our lives in a significant way.


3.  Do you have any interesting or quirks or rituals?
I always keep 3 or 4 bottles of water on my desk when I write so I remember to hydrate. I also like to have a favorite show's music playing in the background when I write.


4.  What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?
My first editor, Jen Bradlee, pushed me far beyond my 'safe' borders and showed me how to make my stories stronger and better.


5.  What does your family think about your career as a published author?
They are very supportive and push me to write more.


6.  Besides writing, what other interests do you have?
I love, love, love to read. I also am a huge Doctor Who fan and binge on complete seasons thanks to Netflix.


7.  Can you tell us what is coming up next for you?
I'm working on the next three books in the Wedding by C and C series. there's also a special edition of the next chapter in Anna and Robin's story called 'Stuck on You' coming in February 2015 J

Blurb:
Monica has deep roots in the small town of Abbeville and manages the local coffee shop, which serves as the hub of town news. Deeply in love with Daniel, she still can't help but notice the gorgeous stranger, Micheal, who seemingly appears out of nowhere. When Dan begins to pull away from her, what's a girl to do? Tempted to sit home and cry, Monica is determined to push through the uncertainty. Does that mean exploring new options?
Daniel carries secrets he can't share with anyone, even Monica. He's a man with no past and no relatives, so he doesn't believe he deserves a bright future. Pulling away from Monica, his love and the closest thing he has to a family, he believes is the only way she can truly find happiness. But when tragedy strikes Abbeville will the man with no roots become its savior? Or will he discover Micheal's true reason for appearing among them?
Excerpt:
"Am I interrupting something?" Dan came in the door and stood just inside, his expression confused. "Is everything okay?"
"No. Amber is convinced Michael is some assassin here to kill someone for Jamie Manning who's part of the Irish mafia." She pointed at Dan as he burst into laughter and glared at Amber. "There. See how ridiculous you're being?"
"Oh, that's too funny. Adam and Emily would get such a kick out of that. I bet Chief Owens would, too." Dan bent over as he continued to laugh. "Come on that's too silly to be real."
"Well, okay, so maybe it is." Amber conceded with a hard note in her tone. "But you have to admit the guy is weird and freaky things happen around him."
Dan straightened and walked over to put an arm around Monica's shoulders. "He is, I agree. But he's no killer. He grabbed the Marley kid out of the street a few weeks back. And Monica told me how he saved Anna from falling right before she gave birth to the twins. No assassin does nice things like that."
"So what's his last name? And where is he staying?" Amber demanded. "I'm going to find out before something really bad happens. Then you two will have to eat your words." She stomped off to the back room, shoulders and spine stiff straight.
